"Go boil yer heads, both of yeh. Harry — yer a wizard."
Hagrid dismisses the Dursleys' protests and tells Harry that he's a wizard.

Wizardkind is the collective term for those who are capable of using magic and are human. The term "wizard" is generally used to refer to male magic-users, while "witch" is used for female ones.

Wizards and witches are rare, with only a very small percentage of the world's population having the ability to perform magic. As such, they generally live in a hidden Wizarding world, separate from muggles. They have also developed their own culture and social norms.

Most British wizards learn magic at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry once they are of age to begin classes.
